Opera to ease the development of User JavaScript

April 6, 2005

Opera introduced support for User JavaScript in Opera 8.0 beta that allows users to customize the way certain sites get displayed (Similar to Mozilla’s Greasemonkey).

Creating these scripts often required some work, limiting this feature to power users. However, in the next version, Opera will make it much easier to create these User JavaScripts. In fact, Rijk van Geijtenbeek, of Documentation & QA at Opera Software, who maintains a site with User JavaScripts for people to download, will discontinue it. “I don’t see much reason to work on my UserScript framework, recent developments make this less useful”, wrote Rijk.

    I’m not saying I will discontinue the site. Only the copy and paste framework script… 🙂

    Opera will (apparantly till we see it) also allow meta data something like the following:

    @include example.com
    @exclude private.example.com
